The miracle is a learning device that lessens the need for time. It establishes an out-of-pattern time interval not under the usual laws of time. In this sense it is timeless. T-1.1.47:1-2
The miracle is the shift in perception from the world of the ego to the world of Spirit and when this shift occurs time stands still. After the miracle occurs people sometimes say, “Where did the time go?” Sometimes people say that the experience was “timeless.”
Miracles do not occur in the past or in the future. They occur in what the Course calls the “holy instant.” Miracles are a mood and mind altering experience.
In Alcoholic Anonymous it is suggested, in step eleven, that we improve our conscious contact with God through prayer and meditation. This conscious contact suspends our sense of time. When we have experienced a miracle we sometimes say, “Where did the time go?”
In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to become aware of the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. This awareness is timeless as we realize the Oneness of life. Sometimes this is referred to as a mystical experience.
Today, we become aware of the fact that time is a construct of the world of the ego. In the world of Spirit time is meaningless. What could time mean in an experience of unconditional love?
